My interests are in paleoclimatology, numerical climate modeling and Arctic change and variability during the Pleistocene. Currently, I am researching the "super-interglacials" of Marine Isotope Stage(s) 1, 5e, anomalously warm 11c and 31 in the Arctic. My research area is Lake El'Gygytgyn in Far East Russia. Using General Circulation Models (GCMs), We can simulate climate sensitivity tests of the Arctic based on proxy data recovered from a 318 m core taken from Lake El’Gygytgyn. Analysis of GCM output will provide mean summer surface temperatures, precipitations rates, vegetation and astronomical forcing values such as insolation at the surface along with other surface and atmospheric variables.
In addition to my intesrests in Arctic variability, I am also a meteorologist. I am interested in the processes that govern severe storm and tornado development. Though my research is not specifically in meteorology, reading about tornadogenesis and severe storm development is something that I follow on my own free time.
